THE SUBJECT IS SEX
"THE SUBJECT IS SEX" films curated by Stephen Parr of Oddball Film+Video
An extraordinary personal romp through the seamy side of Sex in Cinema. Drawn from his extensive 16mm film archives this polymorphous program promises a pulsating panorama of perverse pleasures that includes: home movies, hillbilly porn, cartoon smut, commercials, trailers, educationals, hygiene films, burlesque bits, vérité footage from porn sets, and oozing oodles more! This new work-in-progress version of "THE SUBJECT IS SEX" (Volume One was released by Other Cinema DVD last year) promises to give new meaning to the phrase "Sex is where you find it". Don't miss the Cheap-Smut-Give-A-Way!
"A giddy, sordid tour of an overheated century" ­ LA Weekly
Featuring: EL SATARIO, CROSSING THE EQUATOR, CHEESENAPPERS, SALVO WITH WALLY COX, THE RED SHOES, BEEFCAKES AND CHEESECAKES, ERIK IS HERE!, CHEMICAL NEW YORK, JENO'S PIZZA

7:00pm Saturday, October 1st, Anthology Film Archives (http://www.anthologyfilmarchives.org), 32 2nd Avenue, New York City, (212) 505-5181

Greg Pierce (Orgone Cinema) presents...
A SUNDAY LARK
Films For Kids ~ Films With Kids from The Orgone Archive (Pittsburgh 13) Hey, Kids! Bring your parents to a cinematic core sampling of films from The Orgone Archive and Mining Co. made for you (by adults) or starring you (also made by adults). Sit those grown-ups down and make them look at what they've done to your song and the package they've tried to seal it up in.

4:00pm Sunday, October 2nd, Anthology Film Archives (http://www.anthologyfilmarchives.org), 32 2nd Avenue, New York City, (212) 505-5181

ODDITIES BEYOND BELIEF
"ODDITIES BEYOND BELIEF" is culled from the underbelly of San Francisco curator/archivist Stephen Parr's vast archives of 16mm film. Parr's program is a surreal and sublime look at a world gone wrong. Films both chilling and hilarious are juxtaposed in an incongruous program of creepy religious films (SOMETHING TO TAKE TO HEART), law enforcement advertisements (USE OF MACE), apocalyptic medical and pharmaceutical films (RABIES IN A HUMAN PATIENT and LE MONDE DU SCHIZOPHRENE aka THE WORLD OF THE SCHIZOPHRENIC), PSAs (the New York Department of Health's STARVE A RAT) and much more. These rare oddities and cinematic curiosities transcend the comic and camp and reveal the unexplored and uniquely peculiar netherworlds of educational and industrial cinema.

7:00pm Sunday, October 2nd, Anthology Film Archives (http://www.anthologyfilmarchives.org), 32 2nd Avenue, New York City, (212) 505-5181

Hope to see you there,
